I am not a fan of architecture per se, but I can faintly trace my fascination with skyscrapers to late 2005, flipping through an edition of Whitaker’s World Fact-book, there was a list of top 10 tallest buildings in the world, and right there on the top was Taipei 101, the world’s tallest skyscraper in 2005, along with a picture. 509 meters, wow. As a kid, I couldn’t imagine a building half a kilometer high, it sounded incredible. I wanted to see it to be sure. And right there, right then, was my earliest itch to travel. That memory stuck around.
